        Harley Davidson Motorcycle contract signed by John Davidson who became the Iconic firms president, perfect for the free road lover!

      Milwaukee, Wisconsin, July 31, 1965. 8.5" x 14". "Standard early dealer agreement contract between Harley-Davidson and Pennsylvania dealer ""Paul W. Haines"", ""dba Haines Harley-Davidson Sales"". Dated ""July 31, 1965"". On yellow paper, 8.5' x 14"". Signed by John A Davidson as ""John A Davidson"", Dealer Placement Manager, for Harley-Davidson Motor Co. Expected folds, else fine condition. A great example of HOG memorabilia.A clean, crisp example of an original dealer contract between Harley-Davidson and a dealer doing business in ""Northumberland and Union counties in Pennsylvania"". Executed 4 years before the company merged with AMF.The contract contains the typical clauses concerning such examples in part as found below:1. Place of Business and sales Effort2. Use of Seller's Name3. Service and Parts4. Execution of Orders5. Price Change6. Inferior Parts and Oil7. Sub-dealers8. Termination9. Default10. AssignabilityInteresting contractual highlights that did not appear in earlier versions, delve into customer service aspects such as requirements that ""A Christmas mailer in four colors to be sent with dealership imprint to every registered rider in the contracted territory in November"". And then again in March, to send out a Rider Accessory Catalog to the same.Of additional interest is the importance of instilling strong brand and quality control, Harley-Davison also required that ""The Dealer agrees not to use in repairing or servicing .. Substitute functional part ...and agree to not sell, or offer to sell or use in repair of Sellers products as genuine Harley-Davidson parts or oil which are not in fact genuine Harley-Davidson parts or oil ...""Harley-Davidson is one of the few companies that has managed to survive and reinvent themselves during a massive 115 plus year run. Accomplished by trials and errors, altering the way they do business, surviving buy-outs, to mergers, to turn arounds, to even seeking governmental intervention from the Japanese dumping of product in 1983, and ultimately going public on the New York Stock Exchange in 1986, they have survived and thrived. They went from a product of excellence, to a product of mass production with cheap parts, and back again to a product of excellence, using a different inventory and part strategy. The morphing of this company has allowed them to endure bust and boom economic cycles, invasion of cheap imports, and near bankruptcy. The Harley brand is certainly it's own metaphorical example of riding a long hard road enduring much transition to ultimately finding a successful and competitive business strategy!This all-in near fine gorgeous dealer contract, signed by John Davidson is a great piece of HOG memorabilia for the free riding spirit. There are more Harley Davidson quotes than could probably fill an entire book, but below are a few that define the brand:""Live By It""""Therapy is Expensive, Wind is Cheap""""Don't Fear Dying, Fear Not Living""""Life is Not About Waiting for the Storms to Pass, it is about Riding in the Rain""""Traveling in a Car is like watching a Film, Riding a Motorbike is Like Staring in it""""First Learn the Rules, Then Break Them""""The Best Path Through Life is One on the Open Road""** An overview of the earlier days of the company's path leading up to the late 1990's and through the time it went public is shown below:The only motorcycle manufacturer in the United States, Harley-Davidson, Inc. has been designing heavyweight machines for bike enthusiasts for almost a century. The company is legendary for the great loyalty its vehicles have inspired in generations of cyclists.Early 20th-Century OriginsThe first Harley-Davidson motorcycle was built in Milwaukee, Wisconsin--still the location of the company's headquarters--in the early 1900s. The Davidson brothers--William, Walter, and Arthur--along with William S. Harley, designed and developed the bike and its three horsepower engine in their family shed. The machine went through many refinements until 1903, when the men established the Harley-Davidson Motor Company and produced three of their motorcycles for sale. Over the next several years both demand and production grew at a healthy rate, and by 1907 the company had begun to advertise.Two years later the company produced a new model featuring a V-twin engine that produced a low, deep rumble now identified as the signature Harley-Davidson sound. The revolutionary engine--still a company standard enabled riders to reach speeds of 60 miles per hour, which until that time had been believed impossible. Such capabilities served to set the company's motorcycles apart from the competition; by 1911 there were 150 other companies manufacturing the vehicles.Growth During and Following World War IThe onset of World War I was actually a boon for Harley-Davidson. The motorcycle, having done well in its utilization by police, was commissioned for use by the military. It proved especially useful on the U.S.-Mexico border, which was suffering incursions by the forces of Mexican revolutionary leader Pancho Villa. In all, 20,000 of the company's machines were employed by the U.S. infantry during the war.Henry Ford's introduction of the assembly line, on which he could quickly and inexpensively produce his Model T automobile, had a profound effect on the motorcycle industry. While motorcycles had traditionally been used by workers and businesspeople, the more affordable car became their vehicle of choice. The motorcycle, in the meantime, was gradually becoming a recreational vehicle.The Superbike Era: 1950s and 1960sAs the second generations of the founding families began moving into management positions at the company, Harley-Davidson found itself ""king of the road""--with the shutdown of Indian in 1953, the company became the sole American motorcycle manufacturer. Continuing to prove itself a design innovator, the company introduced its Sportster model in 1957, heralding the era of the all-powerful, throaty ""superbikes."" An entire subculture began to grow up around these motorcycles, and leather jackets and riding boots became as much a statement of one's desire for a life of freedom on the open road as a necessity for motorcycling. Unfortunately, the filmThe Wild One, starring Marlon Brando, depicted biker gangs riding Harley-Davidson motorcycles as packs of lawless renegades. The stereotype that grew out of this is one the company still actively strives to dispel.In 1965 Harley-Davidson went public when the two families decided to give up control and put the company's shares on the market. Four years later the company was bought by the American Machine and Foundry Co. (AMF), a leisure equipment manufacturer headed by Harley-Davidson fan Rodney C. Gott. The arrangement proved, at least initially, to be a good one for Harley-Davidson, for it was also in the 1960s that the company experienced its first competition since Indian went out of business. The financial resources and stability that AMF was able to provide helped the company battle Japanese motorcycle manufacturers, who had begun exporting their vehicles around the world, placing themselves in direct competition with Harley-Davidson.Problems and Corrective Measures: The 1970s and 1980sDemand for motorcycles continued to grow through the early 1970s, and, in an effort to keep up, the company opened an assembly plant in York, Pennsylvania, in 1974. While engines would still be made in the Milwaukee facilities, the bikes themselves would be assembled in the new plant. In 1975 AMF put Vaughn Beals at the head of Harley-Davidson, and Jeff Bleustein was named chief engineer. Bleustein was charged with making manufacturing improvements, which were becoming increasingly necessary as production grew.These efforts added an extra $1,000 in costs to each bike, however, and the profit line suffered as a result. To compensate, AMF management began to apply pressure for greater sales volume, with the result that quality began to suffer. The production standards that customers had come to count on were being lowered, and there were chronic shortages of parts, with the result that as many as 30 percent of the vehicles coming off the assembly line were incomplete. This, in turn, meant extra manpower searching for spare parts to finish outfitting the machines, a task that even fell to dealers on those occasions when incomplete bikes were accidentally shipped.Such problems took their toll on the company, especially in light of rising Japanese competition. In 1969 Harley-Davidson had enjoyed an 80 percent share of the U.S. motorcycle market for super heavyweight machines--bikes with engines over 850 cubic centimeters (cc). Ten years later, just when Honda Motor Co. was opening a plant in Marysville, Ohio, that share had dropped sharply to 20 percent. While there were still some riders who would settle for nothing but a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, newcomers to the motorcycle market were opting for Japanese affordability and dependability.To make matters worse, the 1981 recession severely threatened Harley-Davidson's share of the market for heavyweight bikes--motorcycles with engine capacities of 700-850 cc--nearly finishing the company off as a manufacturer. Soon AMF began to lose interest in keeping the struggling business afloat. To save the company, and to effect a turnaround, 13 Harley-Davidson executives, led by Vaughn Beals, put together a plan for a leveraged management buyout. With the financial support of Citicorp, the management team succeeded in taking control of Harley-Davidson from AMF on June 16, 1981, at a cost of $81.5 million.The group's turnaround strategy called for getting back on the quality track through new management and manufacturing techniques. Unable to beat them, Harley-Davidson instead decided to join their Japanese competition, adopting such management techniques as decentralized quality discussion groups and ""just-in-time"" inventory control. After the company's top management toured Honda's Marysville plant in 1981, Vaughn Beals noted in Fortune,""We were being wiped out by the Japanese because they were better managers. It wasn't robotics, or culture, or morning calisthenics and company songs--it was professional managers who understood their business and paid attention to detail."" In an effort to do likewise, management at the York plant developed three principles for change: worker involvement, manufacturing materials available as needed, and statistical operator control.One of the first steps Harley-Davidson took was to group the employees in a plant-wide network to ensure their input in improving the manufacturing process. The York plant management met with workers' representatives for months in 1981 to achieve a consensus on what was sought and also to ease skepticism. The increases in productivity stemming from these measures were deemed to be the effects of effective communication, shop floor enthusiasm, and increased recognition.The second point of the revitalization program involved managing the company's inventory. A program of just-in-time inventory control called MAN--Material As Needed--was developed, based on Toyota Motor Corporation's Toyota Production System. The plan called for the use of expanded communication in monitoring the flow of inventory. Harley-Davidson also introduced a statistical operator control system to improve quality control. The aim was to reduce defects and scrap by reworking machines right on the assembly line. The process began with the operators, who established parameters for quality using statistical methods. Then workers along the assembly line would chart actual quality and introduce improvements where warranted.During the early 1980s, the company began making cosmetic changes to its motorcycles, prompted by Vice-president William G. Davidson, grandson of the founder. Davidson, who felt it was important to remain close to the bike maker's customers and their needs, would often mingle with Harley devotees at gatherings, sporting his own beard, black leather, and jeans. As he explained in Fortune,""They really know what they want on their bikes, the kind of instrumentation, the style of bars, the cosmetics of the engine, the look of the exhaust pipes, and so on. Every little piece on a Harley is exposed, and it has to look right. A tube curve or the shape of a timing case can generate enthusiasm or be a turn-off. It's almost like being in the fashion business."" In addition to changing the look of established models, the company began to design new motorcycles to appeal to a broad range of consumers.Meanwhile, the competition was moving ahead. Though the recession of the early 1980s had depressed demand for heavyweight bikes, Japanese manufacturers swamped the U.S. market with their surplus inventory, driving average market prices down still further. In 1982, however, the company won an anti-dumping judgment from the International Trade Commission (ITC). This led then-U.S. President Ronald Reagan to impose additional tariffs on imported heavyweight Japanese models, as allowed by the ITC.The additional tariffs--45 percent on top of an existing 4.4 percent measure--were meant to decrease gradually over five years, until April 1988. These measures would give Harley-Davidson the opportunity to effect its revitalization plans. Predictably, as the company's market share began to increase, so, too, did its profits. Harley-Davidson had lost $25 million in 1982, but rebounded into the black again in 1983 before posting $2.9 million in profits on sales of $294 million in 1984. Though Japanese bike makers were able to elude some of the tariffs by building more machines in the United States, by 1986 Harley-Davidson's share of the U.S. super heavyweight market had crept back up to 33.3 percent, ahead of Honda for the first time since 1980.During this time, Harley-Davidson began placing more emphasis on its marketing efforts. In a 1983 public relations move, the company established the Harley Owners Group (HOG), a club with its own newsletter for fans of the motorcycle. By the end of the 1980s, membership in HOG had grown to 100,000 members. The company developed the SuperRide promotion, several years later; it was designed to attract large numbers of new buyers from an upscale niche. Television commercials invited people to visit one of Harley-Davidson's 600 dealers across the United States to test ride a new bike. Over 40,000 people took Harley-Davidson up on its offer. Though immediate sales did not cover the promotion's $3 million price tag, the effort did result in increased sales over the course of the next several years, and many of the new buyers were owners of rival Japanese models.Although Harley-Davidson was making great strides, the company suffered yet another blow in 1984. Citicorp--nervous that the economy was headed back into a recession, especially in light of the 1988 deadline on import tariffs--informed Harley-Davidson that in future years they would no longer provide overadvances--money over and above the conservative lending limits set as part of the company's business plan. Taking this as an indication that Citicorp wanted out of its arrangement with the company, Beals and Richard Teerlink, who was then the finance officer, began searching for another lender. Once word concerning Citicorp's plans got out, however, other banks showed little interest in making the commitment. By October 1985 Beals and his management team had contacted the investment firm Dean Witter Reynolds in order to begin Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings.Before those plans were finalized, Beals and Teerlink were approached by an interested lender. After weeks of hard bargaining, Heller Financial Corporation--whose second in command, Bob Koe, was a Harley buff--agreed to supply Harley-Davidson with $49 million to buy out Citicorp's stake in the business. Thus Citicorp was forced to take an $18 million write-down on its original investment. Heller Financial Corporation's faith in Harley-Davidson paid off handsomely. The company's market share began to climb steadily, and profits for 1986 topped $4.3 million on sales of $295 million. That year a revived Harley-Davidson went public, offering two million shares of stock worth $20 million and $70 million worth of unsecured subordinate notes that would mature in 1997."

        Postcard from Seattle with handwritten message to Lucien Carr and Aileen [Lee] dated August 30, 1965

      Boston: Colurpicture Publishers, 1965. 3.5x5.5 inch color postcard with photograph of a night view of Third Street, Seattle, with the text in white, "Greetings from Seattle." On rear is a sixteen-line tightly written message in black ball-point pen, addressed in Ginsberg's hand to Lucien Carr, 44 Horatio Street, New York City, NY, inscribed "Love as ever" and signed Allen Ginsberg with an airmail doodle and a return address care of City Lights in his hand, dated Aug. 30 1965 with a canceled red 6 cent stamp. Beneath the script is a halftone image of the state with Washington above it. There are several brownish stains, otherwise very good. Carr was one of the primary figures at Columbia who formed the core of the Beat movement together with Ginsberg, Kerouac and Burroughs. He was also a main character in both Kerouac's "Town and the City" and Kerouac/Burroughs' piece "And the Hippos Were Boiled in Their Tanks," both of which deal with the Kammerer/Carr murder story. The text of the postcard is as follows: "Dear Lucien and Aileen - Spent a month looking around San Francisco with poets, then spent $2000 on a Volkswagon Camper 1964 Microbus, & took off for here with Gary Snyder to go backpacking and mountain hiking with ice axes and crampons around Cascade Mountains. I guess I'll be here another month and then head East in the camper with Peter. I got a great sleeping bag the size of a football rolled up. We read Tibetan poetry every morn and go thru Nature forest area...Fortunately I'm far from rumored conspiracies by the Treas. Dept. Narco bureau to fix me for a vacation. Peter is in SF with Julius - Miss you - maybe we'll all go biking in White Mountains or Purple Mountains or - well anyway Love as ever - Allen Ginsberg"

        [JOHN CAGE] Cartridge music : also duet for cymbal and piano duet, trio, etc.

      New York : Henmar Press : Sole selling agent, C.F. Peters Corp., [1965] ©1960. Series: Edition Peters, no. 6703. Quarto, original printed portfolio with Peters' advertisements for other John Cage musical scores to recto and verso of rear cover; printed inner wrappers with full page of composer's instructions for performance of the various compositions, and a further 2 pages ofPeters' advertisements for Cage's music; containing20 loose leaves printed recto only, and 4 transparent sheets (as called for in the printed instructions); this edition reproduced from the composer's manuscript; complete and very scarce in such fine condition. American composer, music theorist, philosopher and artist John Cage's Cartridge Music was composed in 1960. A famous example of "aleatory music" (or "chance music"), it premiered in Bremen on September 15, 1960. It is a work for one to 20 phonograph cartridges and amplifiers. The composer's instructions for performance are as follows: "Each performer makes his own part from the material supplied, which is 1) 20 numbered sheets having shapes inscribed; 2) a transparent sheet with points; 3) A transparent sheet with circles; 4) A transparent sheet with a circle marked like a stop-watch; 5) A transparent sheet with a dotted curving line having at one end a circle ... All events, ordinarily thought to be undesirable, such as feed-back, humming, howling, etc. are to be accepted in this situation ..." "For Duet for cymbal, employ a contact microphone on the instrument. Use sheet number 1. Make readings as above. Where change of object is indicated, lower cymbal into water or onto piano strings or onto a mat or other material or make some such action that changes the sound radically." "For Piano duet, employ a contact microphone on the sound-board of the instrument. If using sheet 2, let one shape correspond to the keyboard, one to the strings ... Where change of object is indicated, employ principle of preparation, but in some radical way (e.g. blankets, pillows, large sheets of plastic, newspapers, etc.) From the official John Cage website: "This work was later used as music for the choreographed piece by Merce Cunningham entitled Changing Steps, with stage and costume design by Charles Atlas (from 1973, Mark Lancaster); still later, it was used for the choreographed pieces by Cunningham entitled Exercise Piece II and Exercise Piece III. The word 'Cartridge' in the title refers to the cartridge of phonographic pick-ups, into the aperture of which is fitted a needle. In Cartridge Music, the performer is instructed to insert all manner of unspecified small objects into the cartridge; prior performances have involved such items as pipe cleaners, matches, feathers, wires, etc. Furniture may be used as well, amplified via contact microphones. All sounds are to be amplified and are controlled by the performer(s). The number of performers should be at least that of the cartridges, but not greater than twice the number of cartridges. Each performer makes his or her own part from the materials provided: 20 numbered sheets with irregular shapes (the number of shapes corresponding to the number of the sheet) and 4 transparencies, one with points, one with circles, another with a circle marked like a stopwatch, and the last with a dotted curving line, with a circle at one end. These transparencies are to be superimposed on one of the 20 sheets, in order to create a constellation from which one creates one's part. It is also possible to create other pieces from these materials, such as Duet for Cymbal or a Piano Duet. Cage also used Cartridge Music as a means to compose several of his lectures, including “Where Are We Going? And What Are We Doing?” (1960), “Rhythm, Etc.” (1962), “Jasper Johns: Stories and Ideas” (1963), and “On Robert Rauschenberg, Artist, and His Work” (1961?)."

        Draeger, 1886-1966

      Paris: Draeger Frères, 1965. Rubbed at the spine and edges, else a tight, very good copy in photo-illustrated wrappers with elongated French flaps. Tattered publisher's bellyband laid in, with crisp original reader reply card.. Square Quarto. First Edition. Unheralded company book by Draeger Fères, the famed French printer known for working with artists such as Matisse and Bill Brandt. In this highly produced book, focus is on the creative commercial art potential of Draeger's photography laboratories. Made apparently for an American market shortly after merging with a New York advertising agency, the book is a tour of mostly European fine art from Impressionism to Pop. However, rather than simply reproduce photos of the artwork, the company's photographers and lab developers labored to create unique, highly manipulated photo images that each pay homage to a particular artist or style. Though created to show off the the creative and design potential of Draeger Fères to potential clients, the book becomes a sort of history of the twentieth century filtered through the lens of an emerging underground psychedelic graphic language. Concludes with tipped in photo illustration of a three year old Nicolas Draeger, extending his arms to the future.
